Tuesday the teen accused of shooting a 5-year-old was sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison. Fortunately the child survived the shooting but has a bullet lodged in her brain and is not able to walk or speak. The case outraged city residents and Lamont Davis continues to plead his innocence in the case. Emotions erupted outside of the courthouse after the sentencing. Friends of the accused maintained that Davis was wrongfully charged.
